Vivo 'Zetoni' model 200 'Stradivari' Cello
4/4 (full size), Crafted in 2017, New
Responsive enough for the technical demands of an advanced cellist. Clear upper register, nice depth and complexity with many overtones to play with. Somewhat bright, with a very nice tone. Would make an excellent instrument for an advancing student on a budget, or a great backup cello for a professional.
The Vivo USA line continues to provide some of our best selling cellos. Hand-crafted in Beijing, China, even the lowest priced models are all solid carved with inlaid purling and ebony accessories (unless noted). We have found that the Vivos always play well beyond their price point.
Based in Southern California, Vivos are made in workshops selected by the owner of Vivo, who is a cellist. One of his favorite workshops has a 40-year veteran craftsman who specializes only in cellos. The owner personally hand-selects many of the higher end models, such as the Limited edition cellos. The 1717 Rugeri and 1777 Guadagnini models are a special project for Linda West Cellos hand-crafted following all the dimensions and design nuances of the original.
Cello comes with a hard case and a bow.
All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.
